Buchanan on Freedom
AbstractOur object is to explicate Buchanan's conception of individual liberty and to trace its connection to the 'working themes' in his corpus-anarchy, contract, constitution, Pareto optimality, 'public choice' and so on. In doing so, we investigate a number of tensions in Buchanan's conception-between a libertarian affinity with anarchy and constitutional contractarianism; and that between procedural liberalism and classical liberalism.
